Thank you, Friends of Sausal Creek!

We are ecstatic to report that your efforts on May 3 for East Bay 
Gives—despite the frustration many experienced—were fruitful.In addition 
to winning the Environmental Hour prize of $3,500 (woo hoo!), FOSC 
shared the Sunset Prize and Last Prize of the Day AND we got two Golden 
Tickets—randomly chosen cash prizes for having donation activity during 
the specified hour.Altogether FOSC's cash prizes totaled $5,433.32, on 
top of the $11,287 in donations that managed to get through the glitchy 
online donation system.In addition, many of you chose to make donations 
via PayPal and Network for Good, or to just mail in a check—those are 
still coming in.Thank you for your generosity and your understanding.

If you think you made a donation via East Bay Gives, you should have 
promptly gotten an email thank you from me.If you did not get a receipt 
from East Bay Community Foundation, go to:
and fill in your email address to "RE-SEND" a receipt.  This is midway 
down the page, right side, "NEED YOUR RECEIPT?"

East Bay Community Foundation asked us to convey their apologies and 
this message:  “Unfortunately, the online donation platform, which is 
powered by Kimbia, experienced massive technical issues throughout the 
day, a problem that impacted dozens of giving days and hundreds of 
nonprofits nationwide. Sadly, this day of giving turned out to be a day 
of disappointment for many of our donors, and we share your 
frustration.”Further, “Kimbia also has made it clear that it has ruled 
out security issues, and there has been no security breach.”

With appreciation,
